Mas Martinet Priorat Cami Pesseroles 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): The 2011 Cami Pesseroles is sourced from a very old vineyard planted with approximately 60% Cariñena and 40% Garnacha on yellow slate where the iron component is not oxidized like in the red slate. It has the ripeness of the warm 2011 vintage but I feel the Cariñena behaved quite well adding its rustic elegance along with notes of tree bark, earth, a little iron, shoe polish, graphite and wet slate, whereas the Garnacha added a touch of red cherries. The palate is medium to full-bodied with earthy tannins and good intensity, no doubt lifted by the alcohol. A powerful Pesseroles; both 2011 and 2012 have a lot of new oak, yet there's no trace of it, which speaks to the natural power and concentration of the grapes. 1,100 bottles produced. Drink: 2015-2021. (Jun 2015)

Mas Martinet:
The vineyard of the Smithsonian, is a family affair. In 1945, Marcel Godineau amasses a small vineyard of about 5 hectares. Gabriel Bertrand, his son, joined him in 1961. In 1966 it moved alone with his two son, Gabriel, and Andrew, apprentices Family House. At the retirement of their father, two brothers take over the vineyard. In 1977, the GAEC Bertrand has 36 acres and is ten years later, the "Vineyards Swift".
